Step-up process

Table of contents

Study places that are not accepted or are refused by applicants who have been granted admission will be re-allocated through the step-up process.

Master's study programmes have a university step-up process.

For Bachelors study programmes, free places will be offered in the clearing process of the dialog-oriented service procedure (DOSV). The application for the claering procedure takes place in the application portal of Hochschulstart

Clearing for Bachelor’s study programmes in DOSV

 In the dialogue-oriented service procedure (DoSV) all study places that are not accepted are continually re-allocated. If free study places are still available after this procedure has finished, you can register for the clearing process for these places at the portal of Hochschulstart.



Step-up process for Master's study programmes

In order to participate in this process, you must have received a notice of refusal in the main admission procedure.

The step-up process can take until after the beginning of the semester. Only when you can actually be offered a study place will you receive a notice of admission online in the application portal.

If you have not been granted admission, you will not be informed.
